I just purchased this yeast strain last night from Brewmasters Warehouse.

It is my house yeast and I love it. I ferment at 63F and let it chew through the sugar like a rototiller on crack cocaine. Pacman allows me to use more specialty malt with out adding cloying sweetness. Damn good yeast strain.

Don't forget that it's also available year round in their beers, especially their darker ones. I have a maibock going like crazy right now using yeast I harvested from a bomber of Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout. Definitely riskier, but fun (plus, you get to drink the beer).

The recipie suggests fermenting at 68* for the cal/american yeast. What temperature should I ferment at? The og is 1.115 so I dont want this flocculating too early

I've attempted to harvest Pacman yeast a couple of times. First time was an epic failure, the yeast in the bottle was completely dead. Second attempt was successful, but the starter did not flocculate well at all in the fridge. This tells me the bottle did not contain a reasonable cross-section of the yeast and, ultimately, was a poor sample.

In short, I decided to purchase a pure culture from Wyeast...

I brewed a dead guy clone this weekend and pitched some pacman yeast from wyeast. Hit the numbers pretty good and it is cranking along at 60 degrees right now Quite the krausen actually considering it is on at 60 liquid temp.

I thought I heard John say that they filter dead guy on the CYBI show for dead guy. This explains why I didn't have luck harvesting from a dead guy.

I think Dead Guy and one or 2 others are filtered. Mostly they don't filter. I know they didn't filter my beer when they made it.
